Bradley Assessor Says He Hopes To Work Out Software Woes Soon And Get Tax Bills Out

Monday, November 4, 2013

Bradley County Assessor Stanley Thompson told the Bradley County Commission on Monday night that he hopes to work out software problems soon so that tax bills can be mailed out.

He said he thought the issues were ironed out earlier, but there were still some problems encountered when it was sent off to the state.

He noted that tax bills have already gone out for the city of Charleston residents, but not the rest of the county.

Trustee Mike Smith said once he gets the notices from the assessor he should be able to issue the tax bills about a week later.

He told Commissioners, "Stanley's wrestling a tiger. It is sure not from lack of effort."

Trustee Smith said it looked like everything was fine earlier in the day, then new issues arose around 4:15 p.m.

Bradley residents have until Feb. 28 to pay their taxes once the bills are sent out.

Commissioner Bill Winters said talks are ongoing concerning the animal control issue.

He said the city of Cleveland had sent a budget proposal, and two private groups interested in starting up a county facility have been asked to submit additional information.

We Can Do Something About Mass Shootings - And Response (2)

A friend posted his observation this morning that there was paranoia about reasonable gun laws. I know his heart is saying we have to do something about these mass shootings. Then while scanning the morning news shows I watched a pile o’ pundits from Al Sharpton to Donald Trump pontificate on doing “something” about the problem. Personally, I think there are plenty of gun control ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: How We Learned To Play

A couple of years ago I was reading a fascinating story that asserted the “Little Rascals” taught generations of children how to play with each other. When the comedy show about children in a poor neighborhood originated in 1922, there were just silent movies but in 1929, when the “talkies” were introduced, children and adults alike were mesmerized by the wonderful humor that producer ...
